If you’re reading this at 35,000 feet, tighten your seatbelt!

The basic structure of the UK’s airspace you’re flying through was developed more than 40 years ago…and it hasn’t changed much since. So in spite of a hundred-fold increase in demand for aviation, calculations about who flies where and when are based on documents that hark back to the propeller age.

Have no fear though. This Huddle case study explains how The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the UK’s specialist aviation regulator, is using Huddle to support the development of the Future Airspace Strategy (FAS). This policy requires collaboration between many different organizations, including the Department of Transport, Ministry of Defense, airports and airlines, the National Air Traffic Control Service and light aircraft organizations.

Huddle enables these internal departments and external organizations to share and manage content on a secure platform. With everything saved in a single location, there is a clear audit trail of who has accessed what content at what time, ensuring the right version is used every time.

The CAA can choose who can access each workspace and control who can download and edit which documents. For example, when there’s a meeting, a list of actions can be made, assigned, and shared straightaway. And security issues are a thing of the past thanks to Huddle’s pan-government accreditation at IL2.

If the CAA had still been reliant on email and legacy IT systems for collaboration, it could be another 40 years before the FAS was ratified. Now that is worrying.
